Overview

About the property

Fully equipped all inclusive holiday home at Shobdon Airfiled

The spacious holiday home is based at Shobdon Airfield and is fully equipped for 4 people in 2 bedrooms with kitchen/lounge/dining areas - full sized cooker, microwave and fridge. The site is a fun place to be with a well run club and café on site - the bar is open Fridays for music night and there are generally lots of interesting things happening with small planes, helicopters and gliders flying in and out. Children are welcome and can play on the lawn area at the front of the club house and enjoy watching the planes come up close and sometimes see forces planes/air ambulances come in and out. You can go for a trial flight from the club and try your hand at microlight, fixed wing, helicopter or glider flying for yourself - it's surprisingly easy to take the controls to have a go on your first flight! The instructors are used to taking all kinds of people who've never flown before and will try to make sure you enjoy the experience - top tip - choose a nice day! The local area is very beautiful and boasts the black and white village trail and has really super walks - the county has some of the best cider and fruit farms who often offer their produce for sale.

About Sandra Allsop

I am experienced in holiday letting, reliable and flexible.

Sandra Allsop purchased this mobile home in 2014

Why Sandra Allsop chose Shropshire

Shobdon is a super, interesting place to stay. The aero club is fun and welcoming and not at all stuffy. All sorts of people congregate there from all walks of life and from all over the world. It has a sunny aspect so almost always feels warm. All costs are included - gas, electricity and linen - there is a good laundry room on site and we've tried to include everything you will need for a fully self catering break - or use the café - it's popular because it's good and open every day.

What makes this mobile home unique

You can enjoy the benefit of seeing close up an active airfield with planes, helicopters and gliders all flying at the same time.

A campsite for helicopter enthusiasts!

  • 2 of 5

Mike the owner was very good, met us on arrival & showed us round the mobile home which was clean and well equipped and which we left as we found it.

While we understood and appreciated that the campsite was on an airfield featuring fixed wing aircraft taking off & landing; what we didn't realise was that it was a training ground for helicopter pilots being trained to hover for long periods of time. I can only compare that to being shut in a small room with a constantly running spin dryer!

Our main criterion was internet access of which we were assured. This was up & running when we arrived on Tuesday but there was no service from Wednesday morning & by the time we left on Saturday was still not working. Obviously this is nothing to do with Mike, but we did highlight it as being important and when we enquired on Wednesday as to the likelihood of it's being reinstated soon we were told that internet going down is a regular occurrence. No service on our i-phones didn't help either.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Was worried as never booked online before, but the owner was very helpful and contacted me as soon as the booking was made, to answer any questions I had. The site itself is superb, very peaceful and situated in beautiful countryside. The caravan inside was immaculately clean and fresh, and the bed was extremely comfy. Everyone we met on the site were very friendly and willing to help if needed. I would without a doubt be returning and wouldn't look for anywhere else now we have found this place. The only downfall we had was the weather. So a massive thankyou and well done to everyone who made our stay perfect.

Long weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation is exactly as described and "does what it says on the tin", and is an ideal base for the local area and the airfield, especially if any of the people staying wish to partake in any flying or trial lessons on any type of light aircraft.
